· It’s funny, when I was younger I hated the name Val, as I knew a fellow redhead named Valerie who was a total tomboy and everyone called her Val. So in my mind, a10;V8l„ was butch – which I never have been – I’m hardcore girly! So I scowled when people called me Val. But years passed and I came to like it – it was more casual, a more personal nickname, that was easier to type and easier for baristas to write on my paper cup. So now I go by both. And sometimes just sign my name as “V’ too.
